Additive Industries, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, has announced that Dr Mark Beard has joined the rapidly expanding Additive Manufacturing machine maker and software developer. The former Technical Director at 3T RPD, a leading UK provider of metal Additive Manufacturing services, Beard will head the growing Process & Application Development team at Additive Industries.

“With over 10 years of experience in Additive Manufacturing Mark will play an important role in execution of our ambition to become a top three OEM of industrial metal additive manufacturing systems,” stated Daan Kersten, CEO of Additive Industries. “In his position he will contribute significantly to the success of the business cases of our customers in demanding markets like automotive, aerospace, medical implants and high tech equipment parts.”

Additive Industries produces the MetalFAB1, reported to be the first integrated metal Additive Manufacturing machine that, in addition to the core 3D print process, adds heat treatment, automated build plate handling and storage in the industrial grade production system. The MetalFAB1 uses a powder bed fusion AM process with multiple lasers.
